~not an ordinary clipboard~

I received a lot of comments on my clipboards found in this post, so I thought I would show you what is hidden under all that paperwork.

I have made the kids' clipboards multi functional by adding a little chalkboard paint.

This is a easy thing to do with a can of spray chalk board paint found at your local hardware store. Of course the chalk needs a home too, so before spraying your clipboard, glue on a scrabble game letter holder to the bottom. It's the perfect size for a piece of chalk to rest.

You can add ribbon to the top of the clip if you want to dress it up a little.

The only thing left to do is to make a mini eraser that will stick to the metal clip.

Start with a small round magnet from your craft store.

Stick on a round felt furniture leg protector you can find at your local hardware store.

They are the perfect size, have a sticky back, and work perfectly for erasing chalk! That's it!

You are done!
